"In our view, Freiburg has a variety of key benefits for the jewellery and gem industry," explains Celine Lau, Director of Jewellery Fairs, UBM Asia. "Freiburg is conveniently located in the epicentre of major industry centres, with its German borders neighbouring France and Switzerland, also making the city easily accessible to Antwerp, Paris, Basel and Geneva, with each city being less than two hours away. It was also very important to us, to be close to major German jewellery cities, such as Pforzheim and Idar Oberstein. The jewellery and gem industry provides 11,000 jobs alone in Pforzheim and its surrounding areas."

Freiburg holds century old traditions in the industries of jewellery and precious metals. Freiburg's wealth and notoriety is based on, among many other things, silver ore from the nearby Black Forest. After the city purchased its independence in 1368, the area grew into the city of jewels it is today. This was led by the jewellery trade, with "borers" and "burnishers" (polishers) making rosary beads and later becoming precious stone cutters, turning out garnets, amethysts, carnelians and even corals into an abundance of jewellery and art. The City of Freiburg and Jewellery & Gem Fair Europe will be offering special tours to discover the city and learn more about its history, during the fair.

Apart from the city's great history and traditions, there are also many other qualities to this pearl of the Black Forest, and the site for Jewellery & Gem Fair Europe. Freiburg is one of the German cities with the highest quality of life. It is also the warmest city in the region, where residents hold a certain "savoir vivre". The weather, the restaurants and hotels, the scenery, make this city a paradise for food lovers from all around the world. This year alone, The Michelin Guide has awarded five separate restaurants in Freiburg and the surrounding area, each, with one of their coveted stars.

"Freiburg is a jewel in the international exhibition scene," said Celine Lau. "This beautiful city, in an ideal location, fantastic hotels and restaurants along with a high level jewellery sourcing platform, offers visitors genuine value." Apart from the placement as the first sourcing-based jewellery and gem fair in Europe, which showcases renowned international and European exhibitors, there is ample reason for the well received welcome, from in the entire industry. The show is already 100% booked, with over 400 exhibitors from 30 countries and regions. The initial launch attracted 12 group pavilions from Antwerp, Colombia, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Israel, Italy, Mauritius, Russia, Turkey, Thailand and United States. The importance of Jewellery & Gem Fair Europe is also supported by the city, with the Lord Mayor personally opening the fair.

Celine Lau: "Jewellery & Gem Fair Europe is of great importance for UBM and for the city of Freiburg. We are working together in every way to make the show a complete success and the first signs are already very promising."
